Sunday’s Weather Update 1/29


Today had warm temperatures, in the upper 30s, and even Bismarck had a high of 41 degrees with a good amount of sunshine. The warmer temperatures led to melting snow across the state. Low temperatures tonight will barely be below freezing, just by a few degrees. This may lead to the roads refreezing and becoming slick. Monday will have bigger changes, with the winds. It is going to be extremely windy. Winds will be sustained at near 30-40 mph and the gusts have the potential to reach 65 mph. A high wind watch will go in effect at 9 am CST for western and central North Dakota.  This is because of a low pressure system that is coming down from Canada. The pressure gradients will be tightly compact, meaning the more changes in pressure in a short amount of distance, the stronger the winds will be. By Tuesday, the winds will calm down slightly and still be breezy at times. In terms of temperatures, a cold front will be coming through creating the temperatures to go from the 30s on Monday to the lower teens for a high on Wednesday. The remainder of the week will have the colder temperatures and a few days of sun, otherwise partly cloudy.

Tonight, skies will be partly cloudy with a west wind at 2-12 mph and lows in the mid to upper 20s.

Monday, very windy conditions with some flurries possible. Winds will be west/northwest at 30-40 mph and gusts have the potential to reach 65 mph at times. Highs in the upper 30s. More clouds in the north than the south. Chance of snow 20%.

Monday night, breezy at times with a northwest wind at 15-25 mph and a partly cloudy sky in the north with more clouds in the south. Lows near 20 degrees.

Tuesday, highs in the mid 20s and a partly cloudy sky. Winds northwest at 10-20 mph.

Tuesday night, lows in the single digits and a few clouds are likely. Winds northwest at 5-15 mph.
